Thanks for the advice. I've disabled the new user registration. However,
the trac instance has been getting hit by 30-40 different IPs fairly
frequently. I've blocked a little over 20 of the IPs with IPtables, but
it's still causing a noticeable slowdown on trac. This makes user
cleanup dificult, since the user view is even slower. It has what looks
like thousands of users, which takes a while to load.
It seems stabilized now, and I really need to get into work, so I'm
leaving it as is. I'll try to get back to it this evening with a more
permanent solution. In the meantime, if someone wants to take a shot at
cleaning up existing users and spam, that would be awesome.
